Debunking Fixed Gear Training Myths

A recent blog post stated that investing training time on a fixed gear bike is not helpful to a competitive cyclist. The usual claim I see with riding a fixie is that it will help you develop leg speed. I can think of several other ways to do this with out the use of a fixie’. My favorite would be to train on rollers in the off season as well as neuro-muscular focused intervals on a trainer or the open road.
